How to improve my technique on the ball

Hi guys, I have been playing hockey for some years now and I am one of the key players in our first team playing in midfield. However I know that the reason I am so important is more because of my fitness and work rate and not my technical ability on the ball.

I think my shortfalls are down to my posture, when on the ball I am often looking down at the ball rather than at the open pitch. I try to change this, but I find it difficult to keep control of the ball and have a good view of the pitch, does anybody have any advice how to improve this?
