Here is a fun challenge: grab your phone and call or text 5 people out of the blue. Instead of asking for a favor, offer a favor. Touch base and be of assistance for a particular need or request. If your friend/colleague does not have a suggestion, give them some ideas of how you can help! Paying it forward and being a resource are awesome networking gestures!
