You can change the settings in Normal.ma using Edit Styles... if you have write access and don't mind making global changes for everyone on your system, or you could use the File Location Preferences (Preferences submenu of the Edit menu) to point to another notebook which has the styles you prefer. The notebook you point to for default styles doesn't have to be any kind of special notebook--in fact, it can be a notebook that already has some of your work in it. The only important point about the notebook that you choose is that it shouldn't change names or locations, or else Mathematica won't know where to look for default styles anymore. If you want to change the defaults for existing notebooks, you should set your new defaults notebook appropriately, open the existing notebook you wish to modify, and click All Default Styles under the Style menu.
