Having a good posture is very important because it allows you to breathe properly. With hunched shoulders, the volume of your chest cavity is reduced which limits your ability take deep breaths. Even a small slouch can cause you to have shallow breathing and increased stress.
Additionally, walking around with hunched shoulders gives off a negative appearance and can cause you to feel worse. If you walk proudly with your shoulders back and you head straight you will feel better and the people you interact with will feel better. If you want to experiment with this, take a 10-minute walk down the street with your head bent to the ground and your shoulders slumped. How do you feel? Now take the same walk with your head straight and making eye contact with the people you meet. You'll feel a lot better at the end of the second walk.
