In brief: Elevation

Elevation is the best.
If both feet are involved you may be retaining fluid from a medical cause and should be checked. Sometimes a diuretic is needed.

In brief: Depends on the cause

Some causes of swelling of the feet can include systemic problems such as hypertension, and problems with the kidneys and localized issues such as arthritis, infection, lymphatic obstruction, blood clots, varicose veins, trauma (fracture, sprain, tendonitis) and side effects to medication.
Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
