That's right: take a break. To be precise, take a ten minute break in the middle of an hour of practice. Here's how:
You can place a book underneath your head if needed, or lay flat on the floor. I tend to have several think books on hand, because some days I need two or three and some days I need only one. Bending your knees, though, is really helpful as it takes the pressure off the low back.
Resting for a few minutes in the middle of practicing makes your hour of work MORE productive. It's not wasting time...it's improving your USE of time.
