Alhamdulilah, 

One should do Constant remembrance (Zikr) of Allah.

Doing any type of good deeds is multiplied by Allah no Matter how small you might think the deed to be. 

According to the Holy Imams everything has a spring season and Ramadhan is the spring season for the Holy Qur'an. So we should try and recite as much as possible. If you can recite the entire Qur'an during Ramadhan you should make effort do so. There is much reward in doing so. 

Some people might not like to talk about the good deeds they do, because as Muslims inspiring to be true mu’mineen, It is more pious to do good deeds for Allah’s pleasure and not for admiration from others and at the same trying not to be too proud about yourself of the deeds you do. 

But it’s is ok to do good deeds publicly  or secretly.

If we have any hopes of having taqwa, we need to make sure we fulfill all our duties (as in wajibats) the proper way. It's important to study Islamic laws and those ones which specifically relate to our daily life.

Also staying away from sins is probably better than doing the recommended good deeds. 

One good deed I can think of is by helping a fellow mu'min break his fast. Even if you simply offer one date to your friend, the rewards are a lot. So yeah,I'll keep some dates in my pocket and will always offer it to my friends at uni lol (inshallah).

people, as to those among you who behave politely in this month, they shall be permitted to pass the Discriminating Bridge (sirat) on the day when many feet will slip (I.e. the Resurrection Day). As to those among you who relieve their servants from a part of their jobs, Almighty Allah shall make easy for them the interrogation on the Resurrection Day. As to those who stop bothering the others, Almighty Allah shall save them from His ire on the day when they shall meet Him. As to those who honor an orphan in this month, Almighty Allah shall honor them on the day when they will meet Him. As to those who keep good ties with their relatives in this month, Almighty Allah will keep good ties with them through His mercy on the day when they will meet Him. On the other hand, as to those who rupture their relations with their relatives in this month, Almighty Allah will prevent them from receiving His mercy on the day when they will meet Him. As to those who voluntarily offer a prayer in this month, Almighty Allah will release them from Hellfire. As to those who perform a religious rite in this month, they shall be given the reward of performing seventy religious rites in other months. As to those who very frequently invoke Almighty Allah’s blessings upon me in this month, Almighty Allah shall make their scales heavy (I.e. full of good deeds) when the others’ scales will be light (I.e. lacking good deeds). As to those who recite a single verse of the Qur’an in this month, they shall have the reward of one who has recited the whole Qur’an in other months.

AAMAL TO BE PERFORMED ONLY DURING NIGHT

 

The recommended rites that are dedicated to the nights of Ramadan are as follows:

 

First: It is recommended to postpone breaking one’s fast later than the Isha’ Prayer unless one is too weak to keep fasting or one is being waited by people to break the fasting altogether, in an invitation for example.

 

Second: It is recommended to begin breaking the fast with utterly legally gotten food, especially dates. This act doubles the reward of the prayer to four hundred folds. It is also advisable to break the fast with dates, ripe dates, candy, sugar-candy, and cool water.

 

Third: It is recommended to say the familiar supplicatory prayers of breaking the fast, such as the following:

اَللّٰهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْتُ، وَعَلٰى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْتُ، وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ،

 

One who says this supplicatory prayer will be awarded, by Almighty Allah, the rewards of all those who observe fasting on that day.

 

Sayyid ibn Tawus and al-Kaf’ami have narrated the supplicatory prayer that begins with:

اَللّٰهُمَّ رَبَّ النُّوْرِ الْعَظِيْمِ

 

This supplicatory prayer also brings about a great merit.

 

It has been narrated that Imam Ali((عليه السلام).) used to say the following supplicatory prayer when he would break his fasting:

بِسْمِ اللهِ اَللّٰهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْنَا وَعَلٰى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْنَا فَتَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ۔

 

Fourth: It is recommended to say the following imploration for forgiveness at the first bite of the food with which the fasting is broken:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، يَا وَاسِعَ الْمَغْفِرَةِ اِغْفِرْ لِيْ۔

 

Forgiveness of Almighty Allah is the reward of those who say this imploration.

 

A Hadith reads: Almighty Allah releases from Hellfire one million persons at the last hour of every day in Ramadan; therefore, pray Him to include you with these released ones.

 

Fifth: It is recommended to recite Surah al-Qadr at breaking the fast.

 

Sixth: It is recommended to give alms at the time of breaking the fast and to offer food to the other fasters even if with a single date and a drink of water. Concerning this, the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).a.) is reported to have said, “Verily, anyone who offers food for a faster in Ramadan will have the same reward that is decided for the faster without having any amount of his reward reduced and will have the same reward of acting good deeds according to the power of that food.”

 

‘Allamah al-Hilli, in al-Risalah al-Sa’diyyah, has narrated that Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq((عليه السلام).) said, “As for any believer who feeds another believer with a single bite of food in Ramadan, Almighty Allah will decide for him the reward of manumitting thirty believing slaves and will decide to respond to his prayers.”

 

Seventh: Narrations have confirmed that it is advisable to recite Surah al-Qadr one thousand times a night.

 

Eighth: When possible, it is recommended to recite Surah al-Dukhan (No. 44) one hundred times a night.

 

Ninth: Sayyid ibn Tawus has mentioned that if one says the following supplicatory prayer each night in Ramadan, his sins of forty years will be forgiven:

اَللّٰهُمَّ رَبَّ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِيْ اَنْزَلْتَ فِيْهِ الْقُرْاٰنَ، وَافْتَرَضْتَ عَلٰى عِبَادِكَ فِيْهِ الصِّيَامَ، صَلِّ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَاٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، وَارْزُقْنِيْ حَجَّ بَيْتِكَ الْحَرَامِ فِيْ عَامِيْ هٰذَا وَفِيْ كُلِّ عَامٍ، وَاغْفِرْ لِيْ تِلْكَ الذُّنُوْبَ الْعِظَامَ، فَاِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُهَا غَيْرُكَ يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا عَلَّامُ۔

 

Tenth: It is recommended to say the previously mentioned supplicatory prayer known as Dua al-Hajj after the Maghrib Prayer.

there is an actual hadith where (I can’t remember) either the Prophet or Imam Ali was asked what is the best action to do in the month of Ramadhan that has the greatest reward and leads to highest gains in faith etc and the answer was "don’t sin" so if you can manage to not do any of the great sins during this month you would have attained the greatest reward there is too attain during this month , but its harder than it sound, in fact it sounds very easy , but far from it

First: It is necessary to truly believe in God, the Glorified, and in the Hereafter. Never neglect this belief. It is proven by clear evidence and decreed by the straight path. Every creature in this world –if man can explore its depths– is a novel production that attests to an omnipotent maker and a mighty creator. The messages of God have come incessantly through His Prophets to remind mankind of this fact and to indicate that this life –as He planned it- is in fact an arena in which He tests His servants to see who is best in conduct. A person who is blind to the existence of God and the Hereafter would not know the meaning of this life, its horizons, and its aftermath, and would be walking in darkness. Therefore, maintain your belief and make it the most important and the most precious of your belongings. Try to increase your certainty of it, make it present with you at all times, and preserve it with strong foresight and penetrating vision.

My normal Ramadan routine is after suhoor I’d read Qur'an and then pray fajr, make tasbeeh and read dua then I go back to sleep lol
