When I started skating, one of the guys that coaches the kids gave me one of the best tips I ever got. He told me that when I skate backwards, I need to pick a spot at the far end of the rink on the top of the dasher and keep my focus on that. It makes you keep your head up and puts your balance more in line with what it is when you skate forward. The other tip is too obvious, any time you can get on the ice, force yourself to practice backwards. I'll go down to the rink at 6:30 just to get open ice and will work on it.
