Clearing notifications causes freezing.

I have a Galaxy S9+. I've had this phone for about 2 or 3 months. Recently, I've began to notice that when I press the "clear " button when I have a lot of notifications, if freezes/lags for a couple of seconds. If I press a button like the home button while it's lagging, it won't work until it's done. It has never done this until recently. Is there a reason why this is happening? Or how to fix it?

You can use these steps to do so, give it a try!

1.    Turn off the device.
2.    Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
