Communicate regularly with other actors - people you trained with/have worked with. Share your experiences, encourage each other, have a get together and do a letter-writing day, or do a play reading, or organise a workshop. Show support when they are in something so they can return the favour.
Books - plays, actor biogs, acting guides etc., go to plays, watch films. Learn as much as you can - there is always something new to learn.
