Good posture maintains your body's positioning and alignment (whether sitting or standing) concerning gravity forces. Gravity constantly exerts pressure on your spine, ligaments, joints, and soft tissues by pushing against these components. Consciously practicing good posture means you are distributing gravitational forces evenly throughout your body to reduce stress on your spine, joints, and ligaments.

The unnatural holding of the palms facing outward is caused by the internal rotation of the shoulder joints.

People who spend a lot of time sitting at a desk or texting on their cell phone are at risk for forward head posture.
