As-Salaam alaikum,
  As you are aware, the Sunnah refers to the Commands, prohibitions, sayings, actions and tacit approvals of the Prophet of Islam, Sayyadina Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. The whole of the Sunnah falls under the Command of Allah Ta’ala in His Book… the Holy Qur’an:—

  “WHATSOEVER THE MESSENGER GIVES YOU [then] TAKE IT AND WHATSOVER
  HE PROHIBITS YOU FROM, [then] REFRAIN FROM IT.” (59:7)

Among the signs of love for the Sunnah and following/working with it, is love for the Hereafter and hatred for this worldly life, except in what is needed to safely arrive in the Hereafter.

Imam Sahl Ibn Abdullah al-Tustari, may Allah be Merciful to him, said: “The sign of love for Allah is having love for the Qur’an. The sign of having love for the Qur’an is love for the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. The sign for love of the Prophet, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, is love for the Sunnah. The sign of love for the Sunnah is love for the Hereafter. The sign for love for the Hereafter is is dislike for this world’s life. The sign of dislike of this world’s life is that one only takes from it what is sufficient as provision and as a means to help him reach the Hereafter.”
