Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of Happiness Project, notes happy people pay attention to others, and that spurs philanthropy, which generates more happiness.

"If you’re happy and you know it, do something good for someone else. If you’re not happy and you want to get there, do the same.
According to happiness guru Gretchen Rubin, philanthropic behavior can be the key to increasing one’s own positive feelings. 'Research shows that happy people have a greater interest in the problems of others,' Rubin says. 'And the more we give to others, the happier we are. Philanthropy creates a kind of virtuous cycle.'” -- John Allen, University of Wisconsin-Madison News
