What's the best way to use heading tags and show them on Google search engine?

For a long time, I think I have been using heading tags wrong on websites. 

 

They always show like this on Google.

As you can see, Google takes all the heading tags on my page and puts them in the description of the search result.  So I have finally come to the conclusion that I should not be using heading tags for those things.  Am I correct on that?

For me that type of information shouldn't be in a heading tag. Perhaps the following quote from the Mozilla Developer Network documentation (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/Heading_Elements) will help:

 

A heading element briefly describes the topic of the section it introduces.

 

 

Assuming that you have a blog, the <h1> tag should probably be applied to the blog title. And <h2> tags would be applied to any headings that may be in the blog post...assuming the post is broken into sections.

Yes I am going to do that from now on.
