ABSTRACT Employees can experience high levels of stress due to excessive job demands, negatively influencing their subjective well-being. Given the crucial role of leisure experience in life, the effects of post-leisure experience on employees’ work and subjective well-being were measured in this study. Specifically, this study examined the relationships among leisure nostalgia, work engagement, task performance, and subjective well-being. Data were collected from school teachers in Singapore. Results showed that leisure nostalgia had a positive effect on work engagement, task performance, and subjective well-being. In addition, work engagement positively influenced task performance and subjective well-being; task performance positively affected subjective well-being. The findings of this study extend the theoretical and empirical evidence of the concept of leisure nostalgia and contribute to the understanding of the role of leisure nostalgia in work and life.
