Answer(s)

(This would tend to be an opinion question.)

One answer: The man can’t enjoy his vacation because of the work he has hanging over his head (depicted by shortcuts and apps hanging above him in the sky).

He can’t relax or see the beauty of the beach because his thoughts are so full of the work he needs to do when his vacation is over.
