You don't need to talk everyday but make sure months do not go by before each catch-up session. Set aside a time to talk to each other at least once a week but keep the things flexible. You should definitely try to stick to a day, but you should understand when the other one has prior commitments. Also,in case of emergencies, try to make each other available no matter what time or day. 

Share Memories

It is always nice to reminisce about good times. Talk about the moments you were together and had fun. Share what happens to you with your friends to keep them in the loop about your new life experiences too. This will help you remember  why you need to hold onto each other.

Take Interest In Their New Life

While sharing memories about the good old times is important, it is also important to take interest in their new life. This will let your friend  know that they can share anything and everything with you even with all the physical distance between you two.. 

It is important that you guys feel that you are still a part of each other's lives and sharing is the best way to do it. 

Practice Empathy

You need to understand when your friend is going through hurdles in life and might not be the same as before. Growth is an essential part of life. But you should always make attempts to understand their situation and take the initiative to make them a part of your growth as well.
