A number of things are wrong with both sentences. In English, we would say one of the following: "My daily walk to work takes me about 7 minutes." "I spend about 7 minutes, each day, walking to work." "I come here (to work) on foot. It takes me about 7 minutes." "I walk to work. It takes me about 7 minutes." "It takes me about just about 7 minutes to walk to work." GOING and HERE do not belong together in a phrase. In English, we GO THERE and we COME HERE. LITERALLY is greatly over-used these days. Avoid using it, unless it is necessary.
