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.
