Some other simple tips which can bring in positivity is washing hand and feet after coming home from outside, lighting up the house when it gets dark in the evening, lighting incense sticks or a lamp in front of the deity in the temple in the house every day in the morning and in the evening and so on. This helps in warding off evil energies from the surrounding.
Remove clutter from within the house
Positivity can also be attracted with cleanliness and to achieve so one should do away with clutter from the house. Anything which has not been used since a year should be disposed off or put to use. There should not be dust accumulation in the house and everything should be neatly kept in its place. Clutter leads to lot of confusion which in turn results in arguments among family members.
