Through a mix of spoken word and rap, Price Ea encourages viewers to step away from their jobs and put the focus on taking pleasure in their actual lives. He advocates for people to be present in the here and now, emphasizing the importance of investing more in personal relationships and less in computer screens. This video touches on the tenets of mindfulness, digital detox and work-life balance, serving as an urgent reminder to take the whole vacation, and soak up all of life’s beautiful moments.
