Sažetak
Research shows that engagement in leisure activities promotes well-being among older adults. The objective of the current study was to examine the relationship between subjective well-being (flourishing) and leisure activities (total number of different activities in the previous year) on a sample of older adults in Croatia considering the variables of gender, marital status, financial status, and self-perceived health. The differences in the examined variables between the groups of older adults who reported to be engaged in new activities with those who did not were examined, too. The sample of N=169 older adults aged 60 years and above was drawn from a convenience sample of adult Internet users in Croatia. Participants reported their self-perceived health, the number of leisure activities they engaged in over the previous year, and completed the Flourishing Scale. Hierarchical regression analyses indicated that older adults who were engaged in more various leisure activities, who perceived better financial status and who were married reported higher levels of flourishing. When comparing the two groups of older adults with and without engagement in leisure activities, results showed that those engaged in at least one leisure activity were more likely to be women, reported higher levels of flourishing and perceived their own financial status as better. This study indicated that engaging in leisure activities in later life might provide beneficial effects for the well-being of older adults
