In brief: Not so easy
This is something that is not so easy to do.
You would want to look up excercises to perform on your peroneal muscles. If you find your foot turning a lot, an ankle brace or orthotic which would help prevent this from happening would likely help as well.

In brief: Work with PT
If you have had recurrent ankle sprains, you may have a weakened ankle, which leaves you prone to further recurrent sprains.
A physical therapist can work with you on an ankle strengthening program. I would not recommend something that you do yourself at home. This is somewhat specialized and you could end up hurting yourself worse, rather than improving.
