How to resolve Eclipse long loading time?

Recently, I discover my Eclipse take a long time to launch its workspace. It is frustrating especially if you are rushing an urgent project.

Basically I take 2 steps to resolve this

Step 1
1. Go to \.metadata\.history, remove all the subfolders inside .history folder.

Step 2 - Once after the Eclipse is launched
1. Select Window -> Preferences
2. Select General -> Workspace -> Local History
3. Change Days to keep files to "1"
4. Click "Apply" follow by "Ok" button
4. Restart your Eclipse, this time the loading time should be much faster.
