It is easy to tense up while you are on the upper strings in either hand. By tensing up, this makes it more difficult to sustain a note for a long period of time. Try to keep your thumb relaxed and curved in the bow hold, and try to aim your left hand fingers on the tip of each string. It is a lot easy to stay relaxed when you are pressing minimally and keeping the relaxed bow flow going.
