You have a timer callback that every 10 seconds starts a 'Loop forever' operation.

No you don't need to increase that time. What you need to do is not start infinite loops over and over. It should be fairly obvious that having multiple infinite loops is a bad thing. Having a number of infinite loops that is ever increasing should be even more obviously bad. Why exactly do you think you need an infinite loop in the first place? There are few scenarios where that's a good thing.
