On Android, Appium hangs with constantly changing UI

I’m using appium for basic tests like finding views and touch actions, but tests on my new app screen are taking forever and timing out.

I am convinced this is because there is a Countdown on the screen, which has a textview that is constantly changing, which supposedly causes appium to hang.

How can I fix this? I just want to click a button not related to the countdown, but it takes forever to perform a touch action when the countdown is on.
