It seems your goal is exactly what Heading x styles are meant for. Your question may then be "how to enable numbering on Heading x?" because, by default, Heading x do not display their number.

Go to Tools->Outline Numbering.... Click on the 1-10 level to apply your settings to all level simultaneously (otherwise, you must do it on each level individually). Chose the numbering type from the Number drop-down menu. Click OK when you're done.

Of course, you can experiment if you want variations on some levels.
