About future tense

I have learned that in Japanese in order to express future tense it is used the present form, but with future adverbs. So if I want to turn the sentence ''I am drinking water now.'' into ''I will be drinking water tomorrow.'' it will be like this:私は明日水を飲のんでいます。

But what if I want to express actions that are not placed at a certain time in the future, like "I will think about this.", "I'll go to bed." ot "I'll do something about it." ?

I hope you understand what I mean.

    I think you can use the volitional form:
    行こうと思います
    I'll go.
    食べようと思います
    I'll eat.
