Take your chain and hold it in one hand in front of you. Now lift one leg moving from the body and wrap the leg around the chain avoiding being tangled in it or making agitated movements. It is best to do this barefoot for more awareness and respect for the chain. Do this a few times in each direction and in different stations around you and if you can do this as you move in some way.
Now hang the chain on your leg and under control move it down and swing it back up to your hands and repeat. Relax your foot and move your entire body so there is no harm done to you. Now hold the chain in one hand and push it with the feet and legs here and there. See how you can move it without getting hurt or loosing control and this is an important lesson on making things work using small controlled movements. The chain shows you your imbalances and is a good harsh teacher at that.

Breathe and keep your eyes free from focusing on the chain and your awareness will grow.
