In brief: Avoid Inactivity

You should try to avoid being inactive as this may accelerate osteoarthritis and become a vicious cycle.
You should try to avoid activities that exacerbate your pain, such as heavy lifting, excessive bending and twisting, and sudden movements. You should do more light exercises such as walking or jogging, swimming, lifting light weights, and light stretches.

In brief: Walking

Osteoarthritis pain is worse upon waiting up, and late in the evening.
Start stretching every morning, walking, swimming will help alleviate the pain.
