Do you really have to post that picture of your Pi with an SSD here everyday?
In my opinion it is reasonable advice to replace the SD Card with an A1 class or upgrade it to an USB solid-state drive (especially if swap is being used).

About the only thing that can wear out and slow down with age on a Pi is the SD Card. As the card gets older the wear-leveling logic makes write operations more costly. Note that performing a filesystem trim (if supported) may partially restore write speeds.

Another thing which could slow the Pi down over time is software bloat, especially in the web browser code base.

It is getting tedious.

Please just post a link to an earlier post when it is appropriate to say the same thing again.

Due to @LTolledo's swapfile reset command, my pi is now back up to regular speed! :D Thanks!
