Audacity freezing for a few seconds when pressing play

This sounds so minor, but it is really affecting me making audios because I have to wait forever for it to begin playing, it seems Audacity just freezes when I press play and then it will begin playing, my cursor seems to turn into a point when I do this also.
It started around the time this new update came out, I thought if I simply just updated it’d be fine but it seems to have gotten worse in the newer update for me.
I can’t find anything on this or how to fix it, can someone on here help me?

So this could happen if you have a “Latency” buffer size of 1000ms or 2000ms. I have mine set at 100ms which is 1/10th of a second. See: Audio Settings Preferences - Audacity Manual
