You can use sleep the thread, which delays code.

it's in milliseconds, however.

@Coder100 I can’t get it to work.. this is the code I have
class DataBase implements Runnable {
Thread t;
static void main(String User){
System.out.println("Welcome " + User);
while (User == "Kris79"){
Thread.sleep(5000);
System.out.println("0 0");
}
}
}
It keeps saying that the class part has a error

you can use Thread.sleep().

Thread.sleep(1000) //pauses for 1 second
