Manjaro keeps freezing randomly every 10-15 minutes

Manjaro keeps freezing randomly every 15 minutes or so and when it does, I am unable to move my cursor and the screen freezes for 8-15 seconds.
Here is my current state of inxi -Fxz

Maybe not enough swap? 2 GB looks very small for a machine with only 8 GB RAM.

Thank you for the response, I increased swap to 8GB but the issue still persists.

grep SwapTotal /proc/meminfo
SwapTotal:       8388604 kB

see this , you may need also swap

Thank You for the response, but this did not help either.

you are on wayland so switch to xorg, and see if it helped
