How to care for my small umbilical hernia?

My doctor recently told me I have a "tiny umbilical hernia" that isn't worth a surgical repair. What can I do to avoid making it worse? (Abdominal strengthening exercises?) If I lift boxes during my upcoming apartment move next month, am I asking for trouble? Do hernias always get worse over time? Help me stop having mental images of sudden disembowelment.
