Chapter 3, Mishna 5, 6
The mourner must avoid activities that will bring him joy during the shiva week. The Sages instituted various laws to protect the poor from being embarrassed when their loved ones died, and that’s why even today Jews are buried in plain shrouds and plain coffins. Don’t mourn excessively. What is excessive?
