Stamina is the resilient power of the body to sustain its composure against the abrasion of the physical world which can be of work, sports or some other physical activity. Generally speaking the level of stamina varies from person to person. It also depends on the state of the body i.e. age, sex and conditions like injuries of the body. But after all has been said the fact remains that it can be increased by constant and deliberate efforts.
Lack to stamina causes general problems like fatigue and lethargy due to which we feel boredom, our efficiency of work decreases and we become prone to diseases. Hence we can conclude that the very essence of a vital and prolonged life is the improved level of stamina.

Make sure you're sleeping properly. In fact don't over sleep, that can make you tired as well. Your sleeping hours should be 8-9 hours, to get the proper stamina, and energy to get you through the day. Go to bed at consistent hours.
Get enough fluids in you, especially water. Water gives you lasting energy and absorbs nutrients. Drink 8-10 glasses of cold water daily.
Drink coffee in the morning. Don't rely strictly on caffeine, though. Caffeine will give you a quick fix, but it won't last daily, unless you just constantly drink caffeine all day, which isn't very healthy and leads to sleeping problems. Red Bull isn't bad, too. I guess this is a way to start the morning off, but don't drink coffee throughout the day.
Start to workout. Believe it or not, it does give you more energy. It's okay to be active. Working out requires energy.
Take breaks. Don't work nonstop and over do it. Have moments to relax and enjoy yourself in the day. Take a moment to clear your mind. Stress can cause lack-of energy.
Start eating better and take vitamins for energy. You can find a lot of vitamins that boost your stamina, like Vitamin B, B3-Niacin, Folic Acid. Start eating more fruits and vegetables as well. Avoid drinking a lot of alcohol. Find some energy bars, the seem to help as well.
Eat breakfast in the morning. Breakfast is the most important meal and gives you the energy you need to start the day off right. Going an entire day on an empty stomach is tiring. Eat a healthy breakfast in the morning.
