More practice! Do it slow and deliberate.
Being able to both palm mute and mute in general with your strumming hand is just as important as any other technique on the guitar.

I agree with Joerfe. That is one of those awkward techniques that can take a lot of time to feel natural

It's mostly practise, but it does rely on you holding the pick suitably.

If you're strumming with a closed fist, or with your wrist bent, you'll struggle to mute.
