  • Sit down and put your feet up! That's a sign you overdid today. I had that happen to me once when I was running around too much.

    I remember taking a cool bath. It helped.

  • Lay down and elevate your feet above your heart. If you can.

  • Drink plenty of fluids too! If you're retaining water you need to drink more water! No caffeine. A little cranberry juice can help flush your system too. Get the 100% juice kind, not the corn syrup kind.
