One trick I learned is that if you’re not used to thinking to yourself in English than it will take you longer to be familiar with the language. Maybe start my thinking internally more so in English than your native language if you haven’t already.

To this point, how immersive are you in the English language? Is your phone set to your native language? Are you reading books and articles in your native language? Do you watch TV in your native language? etc. Might want to try being as fully immersive flas possible for 6 weeks or so and see if that helps.
