Experimental: Paced Respiration
Participants will use a small, commercially-available guided-breathing device to practice breathing at a rate slower than 10 breaths per minute. Participants will be instructed to use their devices for at least 15 minutes per day for 12 weeks.
Other: Paced Respiration
Practice paced respiration 15 minutes per day for a total of 12 weeks.

Other: Music Therapy
Practice music therapy for 15 minutes per day for a total of 12 weeks.
