Question Have a 512GB SSD I filled up and then cleared so now only 240GB is used but Macbook runs so slowly now. How can this be with a SSD?

I have 16GB RAM and an i7 processor. Macbook used to run so fast even with lots of large programs open and half the drive filled up.
I have a 40GB in my ~/Library/Caches, if this is slowing it down why?

I don't know the make of my SSD but I know I have 40GB in ~/Library/Caches . I don't want to delete my browsing history and I know most of that is from other programs. Could this be it? I upgraded to Mojave back around July but it was already very slow before then. I have seven background programs running after start up but they take up very little RAM and I find them very useful. Could this be playing a bigger part?
