I am building a Drunken Master monk, and came across this subclass feature:

Leap to Your Feet. When you're prone, you can stand up by spending 5 feet of movement, rather than half your speed.

Since it doesn't cost much to stand up, can I knock myself prone to get protection from ranged attacks? If so, does that spend movement, or is it just free?

You can drop prone for free

From the Basic Rules and Player's Handbook (page 190) on being prone:

You can drop prone without using any of your speed.
