There isn't really a formula. If you always keep the histogram in the viewfinder and try to understand what it represents in the picture you will find it a decent tool.

If things seem squashed to the right you might be blowing highlights. But if there is a large white object in the picture it should be squashed against the right. Same with shadows. A large black or dark area will give a histogram squashed on the left side.

You have to relate the scene to the histogram. If the histogram were against the right with no large white object causing that you would "resolve" it with a negative EV shift. Another approach might be to switch to spot metering and pre-meter on what you want properly exposed.
