Why is pycharm very slow on startup (any ways to improve it)

Whenever I start pycharm, and then execute a program, it takes quite a bit of time for it to start executing. If I'm debugging, it takes up to 3 minutes for it for the debugging process to connect. Sometimes it may take even 10 minutes. It becomes okay after a couple of such runs. Then the delays of the order of seconds.

Nowadays, every morning I have to run a particular program at 9:30 AM and I have to allocate separate time for it. Is there a way to avoid this? 

Thank you for any inputs

Let's try to narrow down the issue a bit:

1. Is the issue specific to a certain script, or happens with every script (even a very simple one like hello-world)?

2. Do you observe any background tasks while you wait for the script to execute? (Window > Background tasks > Show)

3. What type of project interpreter do you use?
