As much as tolerated: If you can tolerate walking and staying active this may help speed resolution of your phlebitis and more importantly prevent extention of the superficial clot into a deep(major) vein. Very strenuous activity can increase your discomfort and should be limited until you feel better.

An inflamed vein: Phlebitis means that the vein is inflamed. Usually this is related to a clot involving a minor vein or varicose vein close to the skin. The clot leads to inflamation as your body responds to the clot.

As tolerated: Oftentimes phlebitis is painful enough that being on your feet is intolerable. If that is the case, then lie down and put your feet up. A soon as your leg feels good enough to bear weight, you should be as active as your discomfort level will allow you to be.
