You’ve probably heard the common phrase “My body is my temple”.

This ideas comes from the Bible — 1 Corinthians 6:19–20:

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.”
