-Have a stable marriage (which means humbling one's self and putting up with the other's shit sometimes, because he/she is also putting up with yours)
-Have lots of kids
-Find your Faith. Likely not a popular suggestion, but the fact is one must have something to fight FOR and not just against. Not saying be stupid about it, but it's worth seriously considering and investigating.
-Give up watching / patronizing sports ball.
1) - sports are best enjoyed when being played or when one is actually invested in the folks playing
2) - most sports, including at the college level, now have no ties at all with their hometown - they're a gaggle of mercenaries with no common bond
3) - it takes from you an enormous amount of time - time which could be invested better elsewhere
I just think it's become an unaffordable luxury.

To be fair - I grew up playing video games, but I don't play them now because I just can't afford to give them that kind of time, nor do I want them living in my brain taking up space.
Trying to raise my kids well, including homeschooling them, and trying to make myself smarter so I can help make them smarter - that's a pretty big time sink.
Plus I'm teaching them how to fight - so that's PE class. But that means I also need to be in decent shape.
I am not a big sport person. But I have played sport, but I don’t watch it on TV. I have been to a stadium to watch some matches, but only because i was going with friends or family. Yeah, I get your point, I am not invested in the team or players, so it’s not interesting to watch. Although the odd final at the olympics or some thing, is interesting to see, because of how amazing a human can be.
