Brewdog (Dundee, Scotland) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Visit : 29/08/2021

As you may have spotted on my Instagram, I am now doing LOADS more Scottish drives so I can see many places I have never seen before.

Today I opted for a Dundee visit, and by the time we arrived we were all hungry and started looking for a place to eat.

We spotted Brewdog and all of us know the one at the West End, so we we went in and asked for a table.

What I did notice was the menu was just Pizza and that was it, no burgers etc hmmm but that was ok Pizza and beer was a good combo…well non alcoholic beer for me.

The Food

VEGAN SPICY MEATY (VE) £9.95
Temple of Seitan strips, wild mushrooms, chilli flakes, fresh red chilli, smashed napoli tomatoes & vegan mozzarella

Yes you read that correct Vegan! as I was sharing my pizza today and they are vegan.

After slicing up the pizza so we had half each, it was time to dig in.

Visually this looked really nice, and smelled really nice.

Taste wise this was actually much nicer than I expected. It had a nice subtle kick, and the flavours all worked very well together. I don’t normally do vegan, but I could easily have this again.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

After being a little disappointed the menu was limited, maybe due to the time of day or something else…I was very happy I tried this pizza.

We all had a nice lunch, and many laughs…it was a great time.

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

When a day is filled with stress, you can feel it in your back, neck, shoulders, and in some cases can cause a headache. It’s not always the amount of work we do, but how we react to those problems. Message therapy benefits how people feel on a day-to-day basis and improves their mental health. The technique can also be used for back pain, headaches, joint pain, anxiety, and others.

There are many different types of massage techniques. Some are for specific problems. Some are for general relaxation or prevention. 

For example:

  • Deep tissue massage – this one is good for muscle aches and pains
  • Swedish or deep tissue massage – this can aid with joint and back pain
  • Neuromuscular therapy – this can help with back pain. 
  • Reflexology – it also involves applying pressure to the feet and hands
  • Pilates – it is a physical exercise and can help release tension and promote flexibility in the body.

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy has been around for a long time. It is often used as a form of relaxation and stress relief. It also provides therapeutic value and physical and mental health benefits. Massage therapy can be used in various settings, including health care, rehabilitation, wellness, and sports/exercise medicine practice. It can also be done by self-massage with or without the help of an instructor or therapist. 

The use of massage therapy has expanded to home care and workplaces such as factories and warehouses etc., where workers are exposed to high volumes of stressors. Never the less it is effective for many people who have chronic pain. Here are four benefits of getting a massage if you’ve had a hectic day.

Relieve Your Headache 

Studies have shown that massage techniques such as a Traditional Thai massage or Swedish can help to relieve or reduce the intensity of migraines and tension headaches. In addition, those who have experienced tension headaches and migraines have found that messages help ease headaches by loosening up tenseness in the neck and shoulders and help promote blood flow. 

Reduce Back Pain

Massages can be a great way to relieve back pain. Massages help to release tension and stress from your body. Back pain is a common problem for many people. Fortunately, some have found that massages can help to ease the pain they feel in their back. Certain massage techniques can help to relieve tightness, pain in the muscles within the back. 

Relieve Your Anxiety 

The benefits of massage therapy are not just limited to physical relief; it also helps with mental health, such as reducing anxiety and helping manage stress. For example, in studies, massages were seen as a viable treatment for anxiety, as it helps to give you a sense of calm the body and trigger a state of relaxation.  

Relieves Stiffness and Pain In Joints 

If you find that you have stiffness in your joints and pain, massaging techniques could remedy this issue. Massaging techniques can help to relieve joint stiffness and joint pain. This is because of the release of endorphins and other chemicals that can relax and ease muscles and joints.

 Massages have been used to remedy many ailments, but we know how it works molecularly. Massaging helps to activate receptors throughout the body, which improves circulation and oxygenation of our muscles and joints.

Struggling To Listen To Music: Extend Your Listening Periods

Listening to music is one of the most pleasurable things for human beings, but it can also be challenging. First, you have your tastes and styles for what you like to listen to. But with so many options, sometimes you just run into a slump where you don’t know what to do about your listening habits.

Fortunately, some ways can help you enjoy listening more. Here are some ideas on how:

Listen More Than Once

Listen to your favorite song more than once. Some people might think that listening to a song repeatedly is pointless and boring, but there’s something cool about it. You can listen to music when you’re in bed trying to fall asleep. If there’s a song that makes you feel happy, listen to it when you need an energy boost. 

People tend to think about listening more than once as being something negative or dull, but the truth is that there are some excellent benefits from doing this. For example, listening to a song more than once helps you memorize the lyrics.

Invest in the Best Headphones

One of the best ways to enjoy listening to music more is by investing in the best headphones. You should invest in headphone amps that will allow you to listen to your favorite tracks with high-quality sound while still being comfortable enough for long periods at a time. With so many different types of headphones available on today’s market, you must choose a pair that most closely matches your requirements. You can learn more about this topic in our blog article on the best noise-canceling headphones.

Understand Lyrics

Understanding lyrics is a great way to pump yourself up and get more out of your music. If you already know the song, try to think about what it means when listening to certain parts or sections. You can also analyze how words are used in different situations, which could also help your creative writing skills.

Listen to Tracks Individually

You can start switching to individual tracks by doing so with your next album purchase. This way, you are more likely to enjoy the music on it, making listening to a much better experience overall. It is crucial that when choosing new songs for yourself, consider self-interest to get something that you’ll appreciate.

Explore New Artists Music

It can be a little daunting to start listening to new artists. You may not know what you’re going to get, so it pays off in the long run if you explore multiple genres and different types of music. Once you find an artist that speaks to your soul, you can add it to your favorite tunes.

Learn an Instrument

Music lessons can help you understand music language that doesn’t take the written form. Sure, it’s easier to learn how to read music and play an instrument when you have sheet music in front of you, but there are so many ways one can enjoy listening if you don’t know how to pick up a guitar or sit at the piano physically.

Conclusion

As you can see, there are so many ways that you can start enjoying listening to music more. You don’t have to be stuck in the same patterns. Now is an excellent time for a change. What will your life look like when you allow yourself to enjoy music?
