Light a lamp, show incense sticks and do a small prayer every morning and evening, this helps evil energies to stay away.
Have a nameplate outside your door

Light Lamps and Diyas
Light lamps, diyas and incense at home each evening and morning. This acts as a cleanser, shooing away the negativity or any evil eye.
Placement of Kitchen
Build your kitchen in the south-east corner of the house. If not possible then, the north-west corner is the second best option. However, make sure your gas stove is placed in the south-east direction.
Lemon drives away negative energy
To shoo away negative energy, place a lemon in a glass of water. This water needs to be changed every Saturday. This must be done religiously each week.
Dont keep medicines in kitchen
Proof your kitchen against all evils. You can do so by keeping medicines away from the kitchen. This is because a kitchen indicates health and happiness, and medicines indicate otherwise.
Clear your mind. To do so, meditate for at least 15-20 minutes in a day. Chanting mantras also helps calm the mind. A clear mind can help do wonders. Plus, they are known to infuse positivity and good energy in the surroundings.
Mirrors in bedroom

Place holy water in house
In the dark, unused corners of the house, place holy Ganga jal. This needs to change every weekly. Placing holy water helps the inflow of positive energy.
Use holy symbol of Swastik

Wind chimes in house

Salt absorbs negative energy
