But especially the next video, which I found quite interesting, which says something close to:
- a cause for a wandering mind is that we have spoiled our mind, and it got used to do what it wants, it became undisciplined
And the proposed solution is training the mind through renunciation - which means from time to time giving up the pleasures we are offering ourselves.

I remember a teacher saying that boredom is a type of anger. In my experience I would probably say frustration.But when the mind thinking about not angry and not greedy things i don't feel anything, it is boring.
What you could try is doing metta before the meditation, with the meditation as an object for metta, maybe something like:
"May my meditation be peaceful, with ease and free of suffering".
Not sure what is your object of meditation, if it's the breath, you could also say:
"May my breath be peaceful, relaxed"
