Five things for equanimity to grow:

1. Impartiality regarding all living and sentient beings

2. Indifference regarding all inanimate constructions

3. Avoiding biased people who prefer favouritism and one-sided partiality

4. Friendship with well ballanced people unmoved by both pleasure and pain

5. Commitment to ballance the mind into even and imperturbable equanimity

(from Samyutta Nikaya 46)
