Greetings. Sorry about your sprain. Any ligament impact (sprain) takes time to heal depending on grade. Do not weight bear on ankle (do not walk on that ankle or use crutches instead). Have foot elevated for couple of days.
All the above will help in recovery and do remember sprains will take couple of weeks to heal.
It takes time. Keep like warm water sponging. You may use anklet for some time.
