How can I organize this code better?

I am doing a website to practice.

body {
    margin:  0 auto;




}

/*************************************
**HEADER*****************************/
.heading {
    padding-top: 10px;
    height: 300px;
    background: #fcf5c1;
    background-size: cover;




}

.heading img {
    display: block;

    width: 280px;
    margin: 0 auto;

    padding: 300px 100px -100px 100px;

}

h1 {

    font-family: 'Spirax', cursive;
    font-size: 1.2rem;
    text-align: center;
    color: brown;
    font-weight: normal;
    margin-top: 5px;
    margin-left: 6px;
   }






/*************************************
**NAVIGATION*******************/

nav {
    color: deeppink;
    float:  left;
    padding-top: -14px;
    padding-left: -10px;
    background: #fcf5c1;
    width: 100%;
    border-bottom: 6px dotted pink;


    font-size: 1.2rem;



}

nav li {
     display: inline-block;
     padding-right: 15px;
     padding-left: 15px;




}

nav ul{

    list-style: none;
  margin: 0 0;
  padding: 0px;
  padding-bottom: -10px;


}

What do you mean by better? For mฤ“ it would look like this:

/***************************************
MAIN
******************************************/



body {
    margin:  0 auto;
}


/***************************************
HEADER
******************************************/



.heading {
    padding-top: 10px;
    height: 300px;
    background: #fcf5c1;
    background-size: cover;
}

.heading img {
    display: block; /* Displays as block element */
    width: 280px; /*  Sets the width */
    margin: 0 auto; /* Centers the content */
    padding: 300px 100px -100px 100px; /* Padding Top/Left/Bottom/Right */
}

h1 {
    font-family: 'Spirax', cursive;
    font-size: 1.2rem;
    text-align: center;
    color: brown;
    font-weight: normal;
    margin-top: 5px;
    margin-left: 6px;
}


/***************************************
NAVIGATION
******************************************/



nav {
    color: deeppink;
    float:  left;
    padding-top: -14px;
    padding-left: -10px;
    background: #fcf5c1;
    width: 100%;
    border-bottom: 6px dotted pink;
    font-size: 1.2rem;   /* 1.2 * rootfontsize */
}

nav li {
     display: inline-block;
     padding-right: 15px;
     padding-left: 15px;
}

nav ul{
   list-style: none;
  margin: 0 0;
  padding: 0px;
  padding-bottom: -10px;
}

Thank you for your answer. I posted the question because I though I had a mess.
