In brief: Avoid uneven surface
Most ankle sprains occur when the foot rolls inward affecting the outside ligaments.
Ice, elevate and compression with acute injuries. Supportive brace until healing. Restoration of range of motion, strength and proprioception (balance) is key to prevention of injury. I would emphasize one leg balance and increase time until you can do it for one minute. Advanced activity stand on foam pillow.

In brief: None
If it was treated and healed properly you should not have to avoid any exercises.
You may want to consider using an ankle brace for protection.
