When people are asked the question: "How much more money would you need to be happier?" the standard answer is $10,000. Studies also show that giving of ones time to a charity or worthy cause will help someone derive the same amount of happiness if not more.
I figure if I were to go out and work more and earn another $10,000 per year, I would not have time to enjoy my family, friends or free time. I find it much easier to give an hour of my time once a month or sometimes once a week and the happy feeling lasts much longer.
At the end of our lives it won't matter if we earned that extra $10,000, it will matter who's lives we touched and how they touched ours.
Wishing you a happy life:)
