Walking, jogging and cycling , squat , high kneses , jumping jacks , running are all good exercises that force your lower leg muscles to contract .
If you decide to jog, then run on softer surfaces (such as grass) and wear well-cushioned shoes or else you increase the risk of damaging or spraining your ankles and contributing to your problem.
Stretching your ankles and lower legs may also promote better blood and lymph . 
You have to reduce salt in your food and reduce alcohol and if you are pregnant you have to be patient.
If non of these worked the cause may be genetic . In this case you will have to see a doctor

Cut back on your sodium intake ... tomato sauce, chutneys, fast foods, cold meats, processed foods, meals in packets i.e. cup a soup, spices (eat only herbs i.e. rosemary, basil, etc). These foods worsen water retention, swelling etc. No fun exercising when you feel :-(
