Sometimes we get upset or freak out over the little things because there is something much bigger bothering us, that we are not exactly dealing with for many different possible reasons. Perhaps someone important in our lives isn't treating us right, or we made a mistake we haven't chosen to deal with and forgive ourselves for. Maybe frustration or a tense situation at home, with a friend, or even at work, is causing us to react somewhat unreasonably to things that don't necessarily need the given reaction. Once you've figure out what is truly bothering you and deal with whatever needs to be acknowledged, you may find the little things don't set you off as much.
When you drink water, you hold glass for couple of seconds and easily perform this activity. But when you have to hold the same glass of water for longer duration, I am sure you can't. So stop taking worries for long time. Have a small 10-15 minutes worry session everyday. You will feel better. :)

I freak out about little things because I think it is going to lead into a much bigger problem that causes my anxiety to act up
Everybody is different and there isn't a one answer fits all for everyone. If you feel that your emotions are getting the best of you even during what you consider "little things" perhaps you could consider seeking other help through a counselor or therapist. Someone who can help you to sort out your feelings.
