    Everyone became to spend every day easygoingly. See below

    First, remember that "became" should be followed (usually) by an adjective or a noun, not by an infinitive.

    He became happy.
    She became a teacher.

    You do not "become to be" something.

    Also, I don't think easygoing can be changed to an adverb (easygoingly). Easygoing is a general expression of someone's character, not the way they do one specific thing.
