LVM and thin snapshots

Hi there!

Im new here.

Im trying to install Centos 8 on my laptop. I also want to have a
contingency plan in case something brakes.

My first thoughts were to use LVM.

The idea is that i would take multiple snapshots of the system during
the day/week and will keep them for a short time.

I read RHEL documentation about how lvm works and pretty much understand
how to manage the above scenario with LVM snapshots and encryption.
If i understood lvm snapshots will cause delay the system after multiple
snapshots.
