People are curbing their stay-at-home anxiety the analog way: With puzzles

Puzzles are a hot ticket in part due to the coronavirus pandemic.

(CNN)As the one-two combination of home quarantine and coronavirus anxiety takes its toll on millions of Americans, the hunt is on for new ways to pass the time. (After all, there's only so much Netflix a person can watch.) People sharing their quarantine routines online seem to be fascinated by a recently revived -- and very analog -- solution: Jigsaw puzzles.

NBA players are doing them. International soccer stars are doing them. Even social media queen Kylie Jenner is doing them. Local retailers have reportedly seen record-breaking sales and Instagram feeds are dotted with people showing off their hard work.
