My favourite tip for commit messages: write them as if you would explain someone how to do what was done in the commit. So, instead of "fixed a bug" use "replace datetime object with date". It can be more abstract for larger commits (e.g. "refactor payments"), but it should be roughly analogue to what you would write to a ticket title to the same effect.
